Hi,

 

 

 

We bought a house in Dunedin, we're unconditional, settlement next month. Its a house on Stanley Street, Kenmure, Dunedin.

 

 

 

It turns out I will have to drop back to ADSL/VDSL for the move and then start the Fibre install process only once we take ownership.

 

 

 

So I got a pre-qual done:

 

 

 

Serving LWC Name MNG - MDF
HDB3 Present in Binder No
Line Attenuation 4 - 4 dB
Download Rate Range ADSL2+: 16.8 - 16.8 Mb/s, VDSL2: 20.1 - 20.1 Mb/s
Upload Rate Range ADSL2+: 1.3 - 1.3 Mb/s, VDSL2: 10.6 - 10.6 Mb/s
Upload > 300kb/s No
Result Positive For EUBA 40, EUBA 90, EUBA 0, EUBA 180, WVS 0, Boost VDSL, NGA, Baseband Copper, Baseband IP
Result Negative For
Result Inconclusive For BUBA FS/FS
DSL Available at LWC Yes
Access Types Copper
Messages ADSL2+, VDSL2; Connected UBA ASIDs 1690196186; Is NGA Capable

 

 

 

My untrained eye tells me that VDSL is not good and I should go with the temporary ADSL connection.

 

 

 

Have I got that right? Anything else in that mess that I should be aware of?

Hello... Our robot found some keywords in your post, so here is an automated reply with some important things to note regarding broadband speeds.

 

If you are posting regarding DSL speeds please check that

 

  • you have reset your modem and router 
  • your PC (or other PCs in your LAN) is not downloading large files when you are testing - you are not being throttled by your ISP due to going over the monthly cap 
  • your tests are always done on an ethernet connection to the router - do not use wireless for testing 
  • you read this topic and follow the instructions there.

Make sure you provide information for other users to help you. If you have not already done it, please EDIT your post and add this now:

 

  • Your ISP and plan 
  • Type of connection (ADSL, ADSL2, VDSL) 
  • Your modem DSL stats (do not worry about posting Speedtest, we need sync rate, attenuation and noise margin) 
  • Your general location (or street) 
  • If you are rural or urban 
  • If you know your connection is to an exchange, cabinet or conklin 
  • If your connection is to a ULL or wholesale service 
  • If you have done an isolation test as per the link above 

Most of the problems with speed are likely to be related to internal wiring issues. Read this discussion to find out more about this. Your ISP is not intentionally slowing you down today (unless you are on a managed plan). Also if this is the school holidays it's likely you will notice slower than usual speed due to more users online.

 

A master splitter is required for VDSL2 and in most cases will improve speeds on DSL connections. Regular disconnections can be a monitored alarm or a set top box trying to connect. If there's an alarm connected to your line even if you don't have an alarm contract it may still try to connect so it's worth checking.

 

I recommend you read these two blog posts:

if the ADSL results are ~16.8mbps down and 1mbps up then you should have a reasonably decent VDSL line

 

Your Attenuation is 4-4dB so that looks to be well within the allowable limit for VDSL also

I see ADSL2 as 16.8/1.3 and VDSL as 20/10... How can you be better off on a 16/1 connection?

Depending on the quality of the copper you should easily see 50/10 with 4dB. It's possible DLM might move you to 17a in which case you'll see better upload and potentially faster download.

PhantomNVD: I see ADSL2 as 16.8/1.3 and VDSL as 20/10... How can you be better off on a 16/1 connection?

 

 

 

I've had a 20/10 VDSL connection in the past - loads of line noise and constant problems. At the time I dropped back to the old ADSL2 connection and had stability again.

 

 

 

I guess I was assuming that would happen again. But being only a temporary connection... I have both modems, so it doesn't matter all that much i guess

Oh fantastic, thanks. Yep, I was right to come here and ask rather than assume. Cheers.

Ignore the estimated speeds on VDSL, they're based on the old profile and are way too conservative in most cases. Since it's estimating 4dB it shouldn't be too bad.
